The Tulsa Symphony Offers an "Audience Choice Concert," with Saint-Saens and Mozart on the Program

Aired on Friday, February 7th.

Tomorrow night, Saturday the 8th, the Tulsa Symphony Orchestra continues its current season with an "Audience Choice Concert," which begins at 7:30pm in the Tulsa Performing Arts Center. On the program, two works by Saint-Saens ("Carnival of the Animals" and "Symphony No. 3") as well as the "Concerto for Two Pianos" by Mozart. It's sure to be a special evening of music, with the twin sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton both appearing as Guest Artists at the piano. Our guest on ST is the Guest Conductor for tomorrow night, Sarah Ioannides, who's been the Music Director of the Spartanburg Philharmonic Orchestra since 2005, and who has recently made guest appearances with the Rochester Philharmonic, the Louisville Orchestra, the Buffalo Philharmonic, North Carolina Symphony, Charleston Symphony Orchestra, and Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra, to name but a few. As we learn on today's show, Ioannides (shown here) has also worked on several "multi-media" music projects over the years --- setting music to films, for example, or even setting images and photos to a given musical composition --- and she's especially dedicated to the music of living composers, such as John Corigliano, Dario Marianelli, Tan Dun, Steve Reich, and Jennifer Higdon. (You'll find a detailed bio for Ioannides here, and you'll find more about tomorrow night's concert at this link.)
